Banana bread

Saturday, July 11th, 2009

Word problem: It takes Dick and Jane 5 hours to make 108 banana bread muffins, if they each comsume one muffin every half hour while cooking, how many muffins will remain at the end of the 5 hours? If you can’t figure it out, I guess you could just go ahead and count them.

Broken glasses

Friday, June 19th, 2009

I “fixed” a pair of glasses today by soldering them together. I used an inch long piece of bailing wire to strengthen the joint. I know this would look and work a lot better if it were welded but I don’t know how to weld, I know how to solder. hopefully it lasts more than [...]

Cell phones

Sunday, May 24th, 2009

How many phones do you carry? I carry three. excessive? maybe. necessary? absolutely. The first is my Sony Ericsson w760, It gets used primarily for texting & personal calls. Of all the phones I’ve ever owned this one is my favorite. The second phone is a Blackberry 8700c, it’s owned by Honeywell and I carry [...]

Car bearing

Saturday, April 18th, 2009

The front right axle bearing in my car has been getting louder and louder over the past few weeks so I figured I’d better replace it before my wheel falls off or something. I called Goodyear to see how much it would cost to have the whole thing done for me, they said it would [...]

No Trees

Saturday, December 27th, 2008

About a month ago I came home and found a notice on my apartment door. I looked down the hall and saw that everyone else had the same notice on their doors. Here is the relevant part. What the hell? This really pissed me off. I pulled out my rental lease and gave it a [...]

Tire Blowout

Wednesday, November 12th, 2008

I was driving home on the interstate tonight and my damn tire blew up. I almost veered into the side of a semi truck before getting to the the side of the road to put on the spare. I didn’t think to take a picture while it was on the car but here it is [...]

Four Wheeler

Saturday, October 4th, 2008

Check out this awesome bruise I got when I flipped my four wheeler into a ditch yesterday. Pretty neat huh?

Truck Sold

Thursday, September 18th, 2008

I just sold my truck, I’ve been trying to sell it for the last 6 months and now its finally gone. The guy who bought it didn’t have a drivers license, only an ID but he paid cash so I didn’t really care. I wanted to take a picture of him driving my truck away [...]

Fun With My Car

Monday, April 7th, 2008

I’ve had a good deal of success working on my own vehicles in the past and this last weekend was my biggest undertaking yet. My car had a leaky heater core so the first half of Saturday was spend disassembling the dashboard. Once I found the heater core, I drained the coolant and replaced the [...]

S10 Starter

Monday, March 31st, 2008

Back in November, the starter died in my truck but I wasn’t willing to dish out $400 to have it replaced. I bought a starter on eBay for $30 and waited for a weekend warm enough to install it and yesterday was it. It took me 4 hours, most of which was spent trying to [...]
